SustainabilityGeneral Operating Support for Organizations
The Sustainability program provides general operating support to arts and cultural organizations that make an important contribution to the health and vitality of Ohio communities. Sustainability grants ensure that public support of the arts continues to play an integral role in sustaining the rich past and vibrant future of Ohio through flexible and reliable funding for annual arts programming. A rigorous application and review process assures citizens and legislators that Sustainability grantees will use public funds resourcefully and responsibly. Organizations must demonstrate excellent artistic, educational and cultural value, responsiveness to their community, credible planning and evaluation strategies, and a high level of financial and managerial accountability. When these characteristics are in balance, organizations are well positioned to provide Ohioans with diverse opportunities to participate in the arts and enjoy their benefits throughout their lives.
Before applying to this program you must read the program Guidelines, and Appendix A: Legal Requirements. Applications are accepted using the Online Grant Application system (ARTIE). If you have questions about the program that are not addressed in the Guidelines, you may wish to consult the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) section, or contact your regional program coordinator for more information.
